My condolences to the family of Bryan. He was one of my favorite uncles, a gentle soul. He had a soft-spoken spirit, such a warm smile and sense of humor that made me laugh. He was always so sweet to me and my young daughters, such fond memories. May he rest in peace. Love & prayers to his wife Terry. ✝️🙏
